In his commencement address, Usher encouraged the graduating class to take what they learned in college to “go into the world and make great things”. The speech was followed by a special performance featuring some of his biggest hits.

“My goal as an artist has always been to inspire people to make a positive impact through my music, to make you feel something, and last night I felt proud…of the legacy that has been built and that we’re building together as artists to keep running past that finish line [of your goals], break the barriers, identify that spark in you that motivates you to keep going,” Usher says.

Close friend and fellow musician Jermaine Dupri takes to Instagram to upload a celebratory post about the graduation. Dupri’s catalog and accolades in the music industry also earned him an honorary doctorate last May.

It’s safe to say that we can now, as Usher put it, refer to him as “D-O-C-T-O-R-R-A-Y-M-O-N-D”.
